Tattersall Valentine is a high-ranking member of Salsola, where he was born and raised.

The son of Morgana Revlis and Brocade Valentine, Tattersall was born alongside three sisters: Velour, Taffetta, and Intarsia. When the puppies were very young, terrible tragedy befell the family. While left in the care of their father's niece, Symre Rask, a childhood game would lead to a huge upheaval in their household. Intarsia was found dead and Symre blamed for the incident, an act which would lead to her banishment from Salsola. In the wake of this tragedy, Tattersall's parents closed in on their small family. There was a notable change in Morgana, something which saw Tattersall and his sisters often being overseen by siblings Sionann and Torin de le Poer.

Tattersall's youth was, aside from this, delightful. As the only son of his noble house, he was allowed plenty of freedom during his time as a Bambino. He had two notable childhood friends: Morrow Larue, ward of Salsola's Boss, and Azalea Eternity, a distant relative.

As Tattersall reached shifting age, his father began turning him towards combat training. This regiment and constant reinforcement of “Shield ideals” has had a lasting impact upon Tattersall. Following an incident in his family home, Tattersall moved into his own residence alongside his best friend, Morrow, in the late summer of 2021.

Dedicated and hard-working Tattersall (often referred to by his favored nickname, Tate) has climbed the ranks of Salsola in an effort to live up to his parents' expectations.

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance


Tattersall stands at the tall end of average for his breeding, though it's easy to tell at a glance he's a hybrid. Though tall and sturdy like a wolf, he is made up of sharp lines and lacks a bulky frame. His face is angular and his ears are rather large. Perhaps most notable are both the vibrant red of his pelt or its dark and contrasting markings – he resembles his mother, though gray tones of his coat mirror his father. His skin is dark. There is a notable horizontal scar on his left cheek, and a much larger scar on his right leg.

In his Optime form, which is one he is most commonly found in, Tattersall keeps his hair cut short. Its front end is red, while the lower portion is a charcoal gray. Lighter silver can be found peppered throughout his hair and fur.

He is a strong, agile man whose regular training regiments can be seen in his build and high level of endurance. Equally fond of both two and four legs, Tate can be found regularly in one or the other. Though he does not always wear clothing, especially if he has recently shifted, Tate generally wears short pants and tunics. He has a leather belt of simple make, and always carries a dagger on this. When required, Tate has made use of borrowed armor for combat-missions.

  • Build, Size, and Forms:
Tate reflects his wolfish heritage but overall is lean and slender.
  • Lupus: 30 in (76.2 cm) ↔ 80 lbs (36.2 kg)
  • Secui: 42 in (106.68 cm) ↔ 145 lbs (65.7 kg)
  • Optime: 6ft 2in (74 in) (187.9 cm) ↔ 190 lbs (86.1 kg)
  • Scars
See details
  • Horizontal scar on left cheek.
  • A long, notable scar crosses his right leg, starting above the knee and ending a few inches above his ankle.


  • Speech: Tattersall has a clear voice and is generally even-toned.
  • Scent: Salsola (Pine/evergreen, with salty and marshy overtones), Silevue, acorns, dead leaves, horse.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Tattersall paces when anxious.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Collected and comfortable, Tattersall gives the overall impression of confidence. He tends to stand at greater attention when around higher-ranking members. He is exceptionally polite.
